Manned spaceflight is entering a new era. The next period will be characterized by long duration stays in space and heterogenous crews. EXEMSI '92 was an attempt to study the human-related effects involved in long-duration confinement through a multidisciplinary space mission simulation. Objectives of the study include the physiological and psychological effects of long-term confinement of space crews as well as their nutritional requirements. Many more simulation studies involving humans are necessary in order to model successfully the conditions that astronauts embarking on future space missions will encounter.
